(pronounced ihn-ter-sehb-JEHK-tihv)

Objectivity has to do with perception without distortion by personal interpretations or feelings, while subjectivity deals with perception as affected by personal views, experience, or background. Thusly, intersubjectivity is a term used to describe a condition somewhere in between objectivity and subjectivity in which something is personally experienced but by more than one conscious mind.

Example: A hue labels a color by where it can be generally located on the spectrum – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet – and provides an intersubjective base from which colors can be referred.
